Internal Video Analysis Proficiency Tests
Proficiency Tests from earlier years are available for use by forensic laboratories to conduct internal quality assurance exams of their forensic video analysts.  We offer analog and digital video tests that assess the analysts ability to examine either an analog videotape or a digital video file.  The tests come with a target response key and are intended to be reviewed internally.  If you are interested in ordering internal quality assurance video proficiency tests, please place your order online.

Cost is $375 per test. 

Analog Video Examinations
This test is designed to measure the ability of the analyst to accurately make a working copy of the original, accurately determine the total number of cameras in the system, the ability to locate and track a subject of interest, and the competence to extract images from the video evidence.

Please contact us for more information or email the team directly.
